clients, the environment you want to stay is diversified as possible. i think this last quarter was a great example of that. europe, everybody looks at the negative in europe, yet it was a good place to be. spread your bets out right now. >> so do you expect that we are at this point going to see pretty good guidance, tough guidance? what about that guidance that you're looking for in. >> yeah, i think that's going to be the big question here. i think today's a great example of that. you have alcoa, the traditional capital goods manufacturing cyclical versus a yum brands, which is going to tell you maybe how the global consumer is doing. even the guidance we're going to get today may very well set the tone for what kind of messaging we get this earnings season. >> i want to tell you that alcoa is out three cents a share, actual earnings. expecting a flat showing. so it looks like it's better than expected. we are looking at a pop in the stock as these numbers are released. of course, we want to get more details on the quarter. revenue coming in at $5.8 billion versus an estimate
with the fact that we're in, to put it lightly, a highly unusual climate and environment right now with long-term interest rates being held at 0% for quite some time. >> well, one of the ironies and one of the sad elements of glad path and target date strategies today is they are pushing people more and more heavily into bond at a time when bond yields with more negative. you're not making money, you're losing money by investing more and more in bonds. so we wind up becoming enablers of bad behavior in washington and supporters of that bad behavior by buying more and more of the bond when yields are negative. >> bob, have you a wonderful reputation and a great record built around the idea that you turn conventional wisdom inside out, whether it's fundamental indexing or this assault on the conventional thinking in target date funds. but i wonder what the real risk to the fund business is if these target date funds -- which certainly imply that you're going to have a set amount of money on a certain date. what if they don't work out and what should the assumptions be if i'm an investor on wha
and retail business are rising. and also in some lines of the industrial business. so the overall environment for the insurance industry is very good. your free float is about 20%. will you stop here for a while or will you raise money in the future? >> we'll raise money in the future, however, not for the next 24 months. we are sufficiently capitalized now after this ipo on for the next 24 months, but there will be further capital increases in the future. this is just our first step in to becoming a listed insurance company. >> all right. and just give us your view where we stand at the moment with the world economy. because it's interesting where you're looking at your operations. eurozone still in the grips of recession or low growth, weaker growth in asia. just give us your sense of how you view the world and how it transfers back into your business. >> i'm 100% sure that the euro will survive. the euro is instrumental for the future of europe. the emerging market particularly in brazil and mexico are very interesting growing markets for the future. and also the middle and eastern europea

the federal government take advantage of the low interest rate environment and issue $500 billion in 30-year bonds to fix the nation's infrastructure. believe me, the market would lap it up. fifth, i would slap tariffs on good made by countries that pollute when they make those countries. that would stop the endless parade of jobs migrating from our country to other countries that don't. they have a ridiculous competitive advantage over us. six, i would insist there be a course in high school called money where kids could learn what money is, how to save, how to invest. if people have financial literacy, they would be going to the stock market and they could learn to speculate wisely, perhaps to find their own therapeutics. seventh, i would appoint a steven jobs memorial competitiveness czar to figure out how our businesses could be made more competitive and find out what they need in order to hire and expand, not government handouts but perhaps trying to get educated engineers trying to help these companies. i would reappoint ben bernanke as chairman of the federal reserve. if it weren't fo

be operating under a very different environment. >> don i'm going to ask you the same question? do you have a different investment strategy and president obama than president romney. >> complete fork in the road. this is a no-brainer. you don't even have to drill down to the sector level. all about the fiscal cliff. if romney is elected president, we're not going to have a short-term fiscal cliff problem because he's not going to veto extending the bush tax cuts. and the republicans aren't going to give him so hard a time hiking the debt ceiling. if obama is elected, he has said over and over he will veto any extension of the bush tax cuts that includes extending the tax cuts for the rich. the house, on the other hand, insists on all the tax cuts being extended. if they can't agree, all tax cuts go away. 5% of disposable personal income is ripped from the economy. the republicans take their vengeance by not raising the debt ceiling. we are back in a great recession mid january. which this country can't take. we can't take it. >> we've wasted all our recovery resources four years ago in the

environment where price discovery has been destroyed because the price of money is fake and artificial and not real. >> peter, how are you investing in this environment ten? what are you doing in terms of allocating capital? >> well, you have to -- from the big picture fed perspective, you want to be protecting yourself in non-dollar assets and hard assets and commodities, precious metals, commodities that defends yourself against what the fed is doing. i think earnings will disappoint, not only for q-3, but also the guidance for q-4, so you have to be defensive over the next four weeks. >> everybody talks about the most hated rally. i know i coined that. while money has been coming out of stock mutual funds, there has been money going into etfs and high-yield bond funds. they're not really bond funds. in times of volatility, they act like stock funds. people are seeking alternatives in stock-like instruments. >> bob makes a great point about high yield. we have seen a virtual stampede into high yield. investors have to sell their soul to get 3% today. all is not well on the anniversar

of people in the low interest rate environment, investors are looking and buying up a lot of these homes, looking at that as a way to get yield in here. so not only is it helping stock, it's helping the housing market and that's that wealth effect people are talking about. these are the two areas bernanke knows are vital to how people feel and the confidence factor. >> but this is cart before the horse economics. the stock market is supposed to go up because the economy is going up. and when you push the stock market up artificially and hope the economy will come behind it, i think that's very dangerous. i'm very uncomfortable where that. i liked the stock market more before i saw the fed in there as a cheerleader. when the fed's doing something you kind of have to look at the other side of risk and now i'm getting worried that the fed is doing this. >> you could careless why it's going up. >> from a valuation standpoint, we're certainly getting ac litte stretched. 14 1450 was our number and we're essentially there. you look at the economy, housing is certainly working. autos is search w
